There are two things that are strange about Judd Apatow's criminally underrated comedy-drama Funny People. One is that it was completely overlooked when it came to awards season in 2009. The second is that Adam Sandler instantly went back to making the kind of films his character George Simmons makes in the film.
LoCo celebrates the craft of comedy film-making through screenings, education and funding. Our mission is to help kick-start the careers of Britain's new generation of film-makers, as they follow in the daunting footsteps of Chaplin, Laurel, Ealing, Carry On, the Python team, Bruce Robinson, Ben Wheatley and Edgar Wright.
